Over Heard 2--Number 1 this week, rising from number 2,-- brings in a decent $24.5  million over its 11 day run. As a Chinese film, the film didn't call in many fans as TF3 but remains to be most watched film in the top ten, even without having the 3D boost.
The Smurfs pulled in good numbers in its third week with $7.59 million, for a good accumulation of $34.11 million. Its poised to end its run with $49 million. 
Newcomer Cars 2 pulled in a weak box office debut of only $6 million, weaker than that of The Smurfs; $14.4 million, it should end its run at $19 million. Its the highest-opening for the film in the series.
Fourth, Harry Potter 8 raked in $3.85 million this week to add to its good box office cume of $61 million. It should finish it's run with $66 million, marking the highest-grossing film in the series, the second highest- grossing american film of 2011, and the highest-grossing film for Warner Bros in China.
Transformers 3 passed the billion dollar line mark only because of China. Its by far the highest- grossing film of 2011, the highest-grossing film in the series(TF2 grossed $67.106548 million), and the second highest-grossing American film  behind Avatar's $200+ million gross. It also is the highest-grossing territory of TF3, grossing more than double its second highest-grossing territory--South Korea. It also had a powerful opening weekend of $54 million(31% of the total cume), claiming the highest-grossing opening weekend of all-time. Due to China and South Korea, it's foreign revenue now stands at $757 million. It should finish it's run at $178 million.
Sixth, Season of the Witch didn't bewitch many fans and opened to a poor $2.7 million.  It should finish at $8.8 million
